        Fight or Buy Bonds. Third Liberty Loan

      Boston: Forbes, 1917. Original poster. Lithograph. Measures 30 x 40". This beautifully-rendered World War I-era poster is a fine example of the work of Howard Chandler Christy, one of the foremost illustrators of wartime posters in the US. This poster features one of the artist's typical "Christy Girls" waving an American flag with a backdrop of storming troops behind her. The scene is rendered in a watercolor-like style that likely contributed greatly to the poster's effectiveness in motivating American citizens to support the war effort.<br><br>The poster was released by Third Liberty Loan, which was the largest fund-raising effort in American history to that date. The poster is in good condition with minor edge wear near the top right edges. Fold along center of poster. A lovely example of Christy's work and an icon of the World War I era.<br><br> Howard Chandler Christy (1873-1952) was an American magazine illustrator who gained a reputation for military scenes thanks to pictures he made during the Spanish-American War. His World War I posters were incredibly popular as well, particular in his distinct depiction of charming women with strong values.

        Applied Motion Study

      1917. First Edition . Signed. GILBRETH, Frank B. and GILBRETH, L.M. Applied Motion Study. A Collection of Papers on the Efficient Method to Industrial Preparedness. New York: Sturgis &amp; Walton, 1917. Octavo, original burgundy cloth. $2200.First edition, presentation copy, of this important work on industrial efficiency, inscribed to the first United States Secretary of Commerce: “For Secretary Redfield with the compliments of Frank B. Gilbreth. Oct. 19, 1917.”Perhaps best known for their portrayals in the book and movie Cheaper by the Dozen, husband and wife team Frank and Lillian Gilbreth were, in real life, pioneers of efficiency study and management. Frank Gilbreth, though lacking formal education, was an inventor and management engineer. Lillian, on the other hand, was highly educated as a psychologist and an industrial engineer. Indeed, she was one of the first working women engineers to hold a Ph.D. Together, they pioneered the field of scientific management, making great strides in the area of efficiency. This work concentrates on the way that worker output can be maximized by eliminating wasteful activity and implementing routine. The book was inscribed to the first Secretary of Commerce, William C. Redfield. Redfield was an iron and steel executive and author of a book, The New Industrial Day. GilbrethÂ’s work was central to the RedfieldÂ’s professional life in all of his roles, as GilbrethÂ’s main focus was on generating maximum output and profits through his motion study. Ex-libris Library of Congress with associated stamps and bookplates, as well as evidence of pocket and spine label removal.Interior generally fine, only slightest rubbing to cloth. A near-fine copy, most desirable inscribed and with such an interesting association.

The wrapper remains very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. His first published collection of poems. 46 poems. 69 pages + 2 pages of book adverts. Gurney suffered his first breakdown in 1913. After taking a rest, he seemed to recover and returned to college. Gurney's studies were interrupted by World War I, when he enlisted as a private soldier in the Gloucestershire Regiment in February 1915. At the front, he began writing poetry seriously, sending his efforts to his friend, the musicologist and critic Marion Scott, who worked with Gurney as his editor and business manager. He was in the midst of writing the poems for what would become his first book 'Severn and Somme' when he was wounded in the shoulder in April 1917. He recovered and returned to battle, still working on his book and composing music including the songs 'In Flanders' and 'By A Bierside'. Sidgwick & Jackson accepted 'Severn and Somme' in July, with publication set for the autumn. In the meantime, Gurney was gassed in September the same year and sent to the Edinburgh War Hospital, where he met and fell in love with a VAD nurse, Annie Nelson Drummond, but the relationship later failed. After his release from hospital he was posted to Seaton Delaval, a mining village in Northumberland, where he wrote poems, including 'Lying Awake in the Ward'. His volume 'Severn and Somme' was published in November 1917. A remarkably scarce title to find in any condition let alone with the original wrapper. The only copy we have handled to date.

        Autograph letter signed

      1917. Signed. FROST, Robert. Autograph letter signed. Amherst, Mass: January 6, 1917. One sheet of laid paper (10 by 6-1/2 inches), folded once to make four pages, written on all four pages. $2800.Lengthy, four-page autograph letter signed by Frost to his friend Robert von Moschzisker, Pennsylvania Supreme Court judge and legal author, regarding improvements Frost was making to his “little old farm house” and making arrangements for an upcoming visit.The letter, penned entirely by Frost, reads in full: ""Amherst Mass. January 6 1917. Dear von Moschzisker: We too have deserted the high places for the winter. We have come to Amherst to profess Poetry till next June (no later). And it was well we had Amherst to come to, because we had about driven ourselves out of our house in Franconia by the building operations we had set going in it. The changes we are making in the house are mostly on the inside: they hardly show on the outside—not at all from the front: our object has been to keep it what it was, a little old farm house: but we had ripped up floors and moved windows and doors till we hadn't any where to lay our heads or sit down to read a book. So, as I say, it was a mercy that we were asked to come to Amherst just when we were. I tell you all this about the house because I saw that Mrs. von Moschzisker looked worried when I told her we were going to make it more habitable. You can assure her we have saved it about as it was. ""The book came when I was in the middle of moving and a dozen other things. I haven't had time for it yet. I shall be sure to have a lot of pleasure out of it. A friend of yours edited the one you sent a year ago. As it happens a friend of mine, John Erskine, edited the one you send this year. I notice one omission on your part: you failed to write your name on the fly leaf of the book where I should like to have had it. ""Now as to when we were thinking of visiting you. I spoke of January 28th. That still seems the best date. I shall have engagements on both sides of Philadelphia at Baltimore and at Princeton just before and after the 28th. Elinor will be with me. What do you say? Sincerely yours, Robert Frost."" A Pennsylvania state Supreme Court judge at the time of this letter, von Moschzisker went on to become the Chief Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in 1921. Faint foldlines. Fine condition.

        Die Eisenbahn] "Zur Ägyptischen Finsternis". Original Tuschezeichnung unter beigem Schrägschnittpassepartout.

      Wohl Berlin 1917 - Blattgröße: 191 x 231 mm. Loses Blatt. (Im weißen Rand minimale Verfärbungen von einer früheren Montage, sonst gut.). "Klaus Carl Friedrich Richter (geb. 25. Januar 1887 in Berlin; gest. 3. Januar 1948 ebenda) war ein deutscher Maler und Schriftsteller. Richter war Sohn eines Arztes und studierte in Mailand und München Philosophie und Sprachen, bevor er sich der Malerei zuwandte. In Paris studierte er anatomisches Zeichnen bei seinem Onkel Robert Richter und wurde dann Schüler von Lovis Corinth in Berlin, wo er auch die Bekanntschaft von Magnus Zeller machte, mit dem er ab 1911 ein gemeinsames Atelier unterhielt. Ebenfalls ab 1911 stellte Richter bei der Berliner Sezession aus. Gleichzeitig arbeitete er auch als Schriftsteller, war ein Jahr lang Schauspieler bei Max Reinhardt und schuf Bühnenbilder für den frühen Stummfilm. Ab 1919 lehrte er an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Berlin-Charlottenburg, 1922 wurde er dann Professor an der Kunstakademie Königsberg, wo er auch an der Universität Vorlesungen hielt. Ab 1927 war er Professor an der Berliner Hochschule für Bildende Künste. Er war ab 1929 Mitglied und von 1937 bis zu seiner Absetzung durch Joseph Goebbels 1940 sowie 1946/47 Vorsitzender des Vereins Berliner Künstler. 1940 erhielt er den Auftrag, ein Porträt von Hermann Göring anzufertigen, das allerdings nie abgeliefert wurde. Bei den Sitzungen in der >Wolfsschanze< entstand auch ohne Auftrag sein künstlerisch bemerkenswertes Porträtgemälde von Adolf Hitler (1941), das in zwei nahezu identischen Versionen erhalten ist.

        Das neue Berlin" - "Zur Ägyptischen Finsternis". Original Tuschezeichnung unter beigem Schrägschnittpassepartout.

      Wohl Berlin 1917 - Blattgröße: 245 x 193 mm. Loses Blatt. (Im weißen Rand minimale Verfärbungen von einer früheren Montage, sonst gut.). "Klaus Carl Friedrich Richter (geb. 25. Januar 1887 in Berlin; gest. 3. Januar 1948 ebenda) war ein deutscher Maler und Schriftsteller. Richter war Sohn eines Arztes und studierte in Mailand und München Philosophie und Sprachen, bevor er sich der Malerei zuwandte. In Paris studierte er anatomisches Zeichnen bei seinem Onkel Robert Richter und wurde dann Schüler von Lovis Corinth in Berlin, wo er auch die Bekanntschaft von Magnus Zeller machte, mit dem er ab 1911 ein gemeinsames Atelier unterhielt. Ebenfalls ab 1911 stellte Richter bei der Berliner Sezession aus. Gleichzeitig arbeitete er auch als Schriftsteller, war ein Jahr lang Schauspieler bei Max Reinhardt und schuf Bühnenbilder für den frühen Stummfilm. Ab 1919 lehrte er an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Berlin-Charlottenburg, 1922 wurde er dann Professor an der Kunstakademie Königsberg, wo er auch an der Universität Vorlesungen hielt. Ab 1927 war er Professor an der Berliner Hochschule für Bildende Künste. Er war ab 1929 Mitglied und von 1937 bis zu seiner Absetzung durch Joseph Goebbels 1940 sowie 1946/47 Vorsitzender des Vereins Berliner Künstler. 1940 erhielt er den Auftrag, ein Porträt von Hermann Göring anzufertigen, das allerdings nie abgeliefert wurde. Bei den Sitzungen in der >Wolfsschanze< entstand auch ohne Auftrag sein künstlerisch bemerkenswertes Porträtgemälde von Adolf Hitler (1941), das in zwei nahezu identischen Versionen erhalten ist. Das Werk stellt den Diktator jenseits der offiziellen Propaganda apathisch und zusammengesunken mit leerem Blick dar. (.) Zu seinen Schülern zählte unter anderen Rudi Lesser." (vgl. Wikipedia).

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1917 - 1917 Wisden Original Hardback fine condition

      1917. I was very tempted to give this 1917 original hardback 10 out of 10. A can t really find any fault with it. The front and rear boards and the spine are in absolutely immaculate condition. The gilt to the front board and the spine is extremely bright and completely unrestored. Front and rear yellow pages are in almost new condition. The hinges are extremelystrong and the book has an unopened feel to it. The contents are in as new condition. It would be very difficult to find a better copy - perhaps it should really be a 10! We hope to list over the next few weeks a number of fine pre-war publisher s hardbacks including issues for the 1890 s and the First World War and several years from the 1860 s and 1870 s all in fine condition. Please keep a look out for them.

        Lion Cachet - Jaarbeurs Utrecht.

      DE EERSTE JAARBEURS IN NEDERLANDReclame affiche voor de eerste Nederlandse Jaarbeurs te Utrecht in 1917. Kleurenlithografie ontworpen door Carel Adolph Lion Cachet (1864 ?? 1945). Afm. 102 x 69 cm. Gedurende de Eerste Wereldoorlog verloor Nederland zijn internationale handelscontacten, zodat het na enige tijd op zichzelf was aangewezen. Er kwamen tal van industrieën met produkten die voorheen geïmporteerd werden, wat een opbloei van de binnenlandse handel tot gevolg had. Hierdoor ontstond behoefte aan een centraal punt, waar binnenlandse handelscontacten gelegd konden worden. In 1917 wordt door de Vereeniging Nederlandsch Fabrikaat de eerste Jaarbeurs in Nederland georganiseerd. De keuze viel op Utrecht als vestigingsplaats vanwege de centrale ligging. De beurs werd gehouden in barakken op het Janskerkhof en het Vredenburg en in de gebouwen van de fruithal en de graanbeurs op het Vredenburg.Hoewel verkoop en détail verboden was, werd het grote publiek in de gelegen-heid gesteld de laatste dagen van de beurs te bezoeken. De organisatoren vonden het bij het karakter van de jaarbeurs horen, dat zij gehouden werd in de straten en op de pleinen van de stad. Een commissie voor vermakelijkheden zorgde tijdens de beurs voor ontspanning en vermaak. Utrecht veranderde tijdelijk in een stad vol vertier: optochten trokken door de stad, etalagewedstrijden zorgden voor fraaie vitrines en 's avonds was er theater en muziek. De beurs trok in 1917 al 150.000 bezoekers.Lion Cachet, de ontwerper van het affiche, werd na zijn opleiding tot onderwijzer aan de Amsterdamse Kweekschool, tekenleraar aan diverse scholen in Amsterdam. Daarna ontwikkelde hij zich tot een all-round kunstenaar; hij batikte, was houtgraveur, ontwierp behangselpapier, tapijten, sieraardewerk, meubels, bankbiljetten, affiches, was boekbandontwerper, en maakte complete ontwerpen voor het inrichten van salons op Nederlandse passagiersschepen. Prijs: ?975,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      [Wien], 27. IX. 1917. - 2 SS. auf 2 Bll. 4to. Begeisterter Brief an den Schauspieler Edgar Klitsch: "Ich habe Sie zum erstenmale im Leben in dem Stücke 'Gabriel Schilling's Flucht' erlebt! Ja, ich wußte bis dahin nicht einmal, daß Sie überhaupt existiren, also gänzlichst unbeeinflusst, weder pro noch contra, ich weiß bis heute [.] nicht, wie Sie im realen Dasein aussehen, habe niemals ein Bild von Ihnen gesehen. Ich halte Sie für einen der allerwertvollsten, innerlichst männlichen, nüchtern-gediegensten, selbstverständlichsten, aus natürlichen, überschüssigen, geistig-unbewußten Kräften heraus funktionirenden Künstler, der mehr, viel mehr kann als er will; also das 'Genialische' im Manne [.] 'Egmont' ist Ihre Rolle; aber auch 'Wallenstein'. Ich spüre in Ihnen den ewig in der Erinnerung fortlebenden Eichen-starken 'Ludwig Gabillon'! Überlassen Sie doch die sogenannten 'Liebhaber' den 'Lieb-habern'!!! [.]". - Einige Falteinrisse mit (durchfettendem) Klebefilm repariert; Bl. 1 mit einem kleinen (etwas in einen Buchstaben hineinreichenden) Ausriß.

        War Drawings.

      London: Published by Authority of the War Office by Country Life Limited and George Newnes Limited,, 1917–8. Edition de Luxe. Signed Proofs from the Collection presented to the British Museum by His Majesty's Government. Folio. 6 light card fascicules each containing a loose contents leaf and 10 signed proof lithographic prints. Housed in a black cloth solander box. Total 60 plates. Wrappers of parts split to spines, edges nicked and frayed. Some edges of plates browned or a little dusty, plate xvii with a repaired tear to the right margin, plate li with small chip to lower margin and small tear to left margin, lix and lx with creasing and small tears to left margin. First edition, first impression. The Edition de Luxe was limited to 50 sets with each of the 60 lithographic proofs signed by Muirhead Bone in pencil, and with his embossed monogram, approx. size 530mm x 395mm. In 1916 William Rothenstein, a friend of Bone and a fellow member of the Society of Twelve, proposed that an artist should be sent to the front to record the War, Bone was chosen for the task. He arrived in August, 1916 at the height of the Somme Offensive and toured the Southern battle-fields working rapidly in various media - pencil, pen, charcoal and chalk - sending back over 150 finished drawings by October. "He recorded mostly life behind the lines illustrating the settings for war rather than battle scenes – the work of the medical services, encampments, soldiers of duty, soldiers marching, landscapes and ruined towns...The detail and accuracy of Bone's drawings provided an authentic, eyewitness record of the immense logistic efforts of the Somme, one that proved immensely popular and resulted in more artists being commissioned." [IWM Somme web-site]. Bone has been described as one of the greatest British draughtsmen and the composition of these "masterly lithographs" [DNB] is a clear confirmation of that judgement. Very rarely encountered complete, the lithographs having often been sold off individually, no sets traced at auction in the last 20 years.
